Description: 

Sustainability is a core issue for all victim service organizations, and federal grants and other funding resources can provide support as well as opportunities for innovation in service provision. Here is a training designed for professionals working in victim service organizations that rely at least in part on grant funding. The goal of this 2-day training is to provide the information and skills you need to identify grant opportunities, write successful proposals, and navigate the federal funding process and basics of grant management. A walk-through of federal funding Web sites and practice working with scenarios and a sample case study will keep you fully engaged and motivated.
